Today, February 15, 2018 is the Partial Solar Eclipse in Aquarius a time for embracing love and peace, and universal attributes of the Water Bearer.
And, tomorrow is the Universal celebration of The Chinese New Year of the Dog.
The Chinese New Year starts on a New Moon and is the start of the Spring in that year (2018) and the Chinese Zodiac is a 12-year cycle that runs on a lunar calendar rather than a solar calendar as in the West.
Personality and characteristics
A Dog’s most defining characteristic is their loyalty. They will never abandon their friends, family or work.
Honest and just, they are popular in social circles. Everyone needs a Dog friend for advice and help. They are also good at helping others find and fix their bad habits.
Despite how they act, they are worried and anxious inside. However, they will not let this stop them. Once they decide on something, no one can persuade them against it.

|Wood||1934, 1994||These Dogs are trustworthy and polite. If given help, they’ll do whatever they can to repay the kindness. They adhere strongly to their morals and ethics. Others can find it hard to understand. They do well in jobs that require patience and will keep fighting until they succeed.|
|Fire||1946, 2006||These Dogs are dream chasers. They generally have smaller dreams that are easy to fulfill, which motivates them to continue on. When friends have trouble, they’ll give advice but won’t set out immediately to help. Every step must be thought out carefully before they act.|
